About average
12 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Enterprise is fighting it out with a Klingon ship when they both pass into a Bermuda Triangle-like part of space--littered with stricken space ships and apparently none of them can escape. The beings from these ships comprise 123 races and rule over each other- -enforcing the niceness clause. However, instead of just accepting their fate, Kirk wants to try to escape but he needs the cooperation of Captain Klothos of the Klingon ship---but Klothos is a lying jerk-face.

The animation is as it always is in these "Star Trek" cartoons-- total crap with embarrassingly low cell-counts which make the terrible looking characters movie like robots! To make it worse, one of the female aliens has the highest pitch and most annoying voice acting I can recall ever having heard.

As for the story, it fair--about average for the series. The only exception is Spock, who, at times, appears very gay. I don't mean that in a homophobic way--I truly means that he acts like he really, really likes guys...a lot! You have to see it to believe it and, believe it or not, this is the best thing about this particular cartoon.
